Finance & Social Justice Workshop - March 21-22, 2019 

In collaboration with Oxfam, Share Action, and the University of Glasgow


This two-day workshop aims to bring together NGOs, early career academics, and PhD and Masters students to investigate the interconnections between finance and social justice in a way that transcends conventional conference and workshop formats.


The focal points of the workshop are two case studies formulated by Oxfam and Share Action. These case studies outline two key challenges in the design of a financial system that works for the many and not the few: reshaping the market for corporate control (Oxfam) and including social and human rights considerations in the drive for sustainable finance initiatives (Share Action).


Participants will be asked to present analyses of (and possible solutions to) the problems identified in the case studies from their diverse methodological and disciplinary approaches.


Application Deadline: 18 February 2019

Funding: We will provide selected participants with a contribution towards travel costs, an inclusive night of accommodation in Glasgow, and a workshop dinner.
